We have just returned from a short break (three days) at the Oban Bay Hotel in Oban. This was a great success. Excellent food, very attentive staff, beautiful views from most areas in the hotel. Our room was not great but this only slightly marred the experience. We did not get the impression that our room was typical of the hotel. They appeared to be fully booked and our contract with the hotel was for the best room available on the day. Be sure to ask for a room with easy access or available via the lift. This was one of the other draw backs re the room we were allocated. If we had moaned I am sure it would have been dealt with.
The other visitors were exceptional friendly and helpful when sharing places to go etc and tips on how to make trips with ease. Met some nice people.
Although very walkable to the main streets in Oban there was a bus every twenty minutes at the side of the Cathedral just seconds from the hotel. There is no bus stop there but you can flag the bus down and same on the way back. Driver happy to stop at the side of the Cathedral.
Remember to book parking outside of the hotel - is available but limited.
We took advantage of going by bus from Edinburgh to Oban. Good journey, lots to see on the way. Some may think quite a long journey but it did not seem over lengthy. No real stopping so take a snack.
The boat over to Mull was very easy to organise. The buses awaiting the boats to take the visitors to the places of interest on the island were particularly well run and the bus driver was particularly helpful in ensuring everyone knew the timetable for returning to the boat etc. Don't hesitate to use your bus pass, if you have one.
